About Direct Moves

My business partner, Barry Barnes and myself, Emma Hughes jointly created Direct Moves and opened our doors at Westham Road, Weymouth back in 1997, followed shortly after by our Dorchester office. It was an exciting time for us. We had previously worked for a large corporate estate agency chain in London which equipped us with extensive estate agency skills and knowledge. It was our time to put our enthusiasm, new ways, efficiency  and passion for selling property into Weymouth town!

We both live locally. I am married with 4 young children and love being a mother, selling houses and running my own business. ... what a cocktail!  Barry, a flamboyant character, enjoys valuing property, amateur dramatics and eating regularly in local independent restaurants!

We have fantastic, hard working and loyal teams in two branches, led by Rachel Press and Daniel Magee together with their teams Charlotte, Clare, Chris, Eleanor, Amanda and Chantal.

We believe in good old fashioned hard work, listening to what the customer wants and putting it into practice, its a winning formula. We are so proud to be the market leaders in Weymouth and Dorchester and are constantly evolving and driving new marketing ideas. We have unrivaled high street locations, great window space. Although todays technology is indeed invaluable, there is nothing like a knowledgeable human helping you and advising you personally on the best home for your requirements.

In addition to more than 20 property websites, we also advertise on Wessex FM radio and have recently embarked upon a new campaign to further publicise Direct Moves to ensure we are the first agent that anyone in our catchment thinks of when considering selling or buying a home. If this is you, we would love to hear from you.

Being independent it is imperative that we maintain good working relationships with relevant local companies that can assist you with your move, making it as pain free as possible just ask and we can refer you to someone that can help.
